Sleep therapy

Medicine for sleep

Sleeping is the main repair process of our body and one of the pillars to achieve a healthy life. On the other hand, its absence represents one of the most common causes of premature aging.

Sleep disorders such as insomnia, frequent awakening, snoring or apnea are one of the most frequent causes of tiredness and chronic exhaustion. In our unit we diagnose the predominant sleep disorder and propose the appropriate solutions for your treatment.

SHA has developed a sleep therapy whose approach is unique worldwide and it is innovative in the field of sleep medicine. It involves combining the western diagnosis and therapeutic techniques (polysomnography and treatment with Auto-CPAP), with the healthy nutrition, acupuncture and phytotherapy from oriental medicine. This is how the success rates of the two separate techniques can be increased.
